For more than 40 years, Ayusa has been connecting families around the world through student exchange. Ayusa International is a non-profit high school exchange organization dedicated to developing the next generation of global leaders and world citizens. By connecting extraordinary international students with host families in the U.S., we cultivate leadership skills, develop intercultural awareness and enhance global knowledge not only through education but through experience.
What is High School Exchange?
High School Exchange is a program of the US Department of State that allows high school students from other countries to come to America and spend one-year attending high school. The program is considered grassroots diplomacy, providing the opportunity for volunteer host families, schools, and communities to share their America with students from around the world, while learning about other cultures. High School Exchange brings the world to thousands of communities, builds bridges, and creates relationships that can last a lifetime.
Ayusa’s international exchange program invites high school students from across the globe to join American families, schools and communities. It’s not just connecting cultures, students become friends, peers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, teammates, role models, and family.
